When the original Xbox came out, I purchased it with 2 games: Halo and Dead or Alive 3. I loved that game so much. It was the best fighting game that I had ever played before and I instantly fell in love with the series. I purchased 4 when it came out and loved it too. Within the last couple of years I have sold my consoles and have become a dedicated pc gamer, which I won't get into the many benefits of being a pc gamer. THe PC gamers have had a lack of great fighting games and I thought it would be the best thing in the world for the pc to get DOA, and it finally happened. Now, I know it wasn't the best port that could have ever happened, but nevertheless I am glad it happened. DOA5LR is still a solid fighting game that uses one of the best fighting systems out there. The graphics are great, even though they could be better. We are still waiting on the online mode which is frustrating but that isn't why I bought the games so it doesn't hurt my opinion of it too much. This might be the only DOA for the pc with all the modding fiasco but I hope that a few bad apples doesn't dissuade them from releasing more for the pc. This is a great fighting game and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys fighting games.
Forget all the hateful 'reviews' that harp on about how this isn't the same exact version as on the PS4 or Xbone. This game functions superbly well for something gamerz thought they would never find in the PC section. The fighting mechanics are solid, miles better than anything Tekken can hope to be, and while not as complex as Virtua Fighter, is more fluid and accessible than that game (ie. more fun). As a 3D fighter, you can't really compare it to 2D fighters, but suffice to say I've had more fun playing this than Mortal Kombat X too. MKX felt a bit too rigid in combo build-up among other problems. This game has a solid 60fps in battle even on a low-end graphics card. Graphics aren't the best thing ever but gameplay > graphics anyway and if graphics was such a huge thing we'd never have indie games or remasters. Remember, this is really a PS3/X360 game that has been slightly touched up. Even then, by focussing primarily on the characters, DOA5: LR has the best looking fighters around. Even better than on the PS4/Xbone if you have a strong PC, but haterz can't see clearly with their hater vision. Team Ninja look to be continually supporting the game by releasing DLCs on PC and by adding Steam features like Achievements. All Steam features are pointless flash that some gamerz think are more important that the actual game. No people, Achievements are not more important that the actual game. And they can be easily added to the game later anyway, like Team Ninja are doing. Online gameplay looks to be coming soon in June too, a treat for PC gamez who would otherwise have NEVER been able to play DOA5 at all without this game. I guess I should mention what isn't in this version of DOA5: LR. There's no option for crazy boob physics. Somehow the haterz value this over actual gameplay, mind-boggling. Then there are 2 less stages, which in itself isn't a big deal, but is an actual valid complaint, so it does knock the score down. And that's it really. Online is coming, so that's not a valid complaint. Go and experience a great game.
This game, its a real shame thats pretty much what it all boils down to. it had a lot of potential as the core gameplay isnt bad however its weird how the developers thought that key features could be taken out and then they expect people to be fine with this and not complain about it. Well as predicted it had a very bad start and was very buggy and the graphics are horrid considering even the ps4 version looked better which makes no sense at all as its very easy to port from ps4 to pc these days. The AI seems to also be broken as well as it lacks variation in its attack patterns. No multiplayer........ Massive let down.
I'm almost exclusively a PC-gamer and therefore I'm pretty happy when the few console exclusive games I want to play are ported to PC. What doesn't make me happy, though, is when those ports suck. I really like this game. It has one of the best fighting systems of all the fighting games on the market at the moment. It really feels like there's weight behind the punches; something I feel is lacking in Tekken and Street Fighter for example. That's why it's so annoying that the graphics are on PS3 level, when they at least could have made it look as good as the PS4 version; the promised online mode is missing; there's weird FPS-locks in some parts of the game (isn't 60 FPS+ gaming one of the best things about the PC) and there are virtually no graphics options. I really hope the devs, with time, can fix all these issues. Maybe then the game can get a higher score from me.
Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is a solid fighting game. It does everything a fighting game should do with one glaring exception: it does not have any online mode. And that just might kill the game. As far as graphics and combat goes, DOA 5 is what you would expect from the series. The combat is as solid as ever and the graphics are decent, if a tad behind the console version. Everything that you would expect from DOA is here, at least from the combat and characters side of things. In terms of functionality, DOA 5 is sorely lacking. Unlike console versions, DOA 5 for the PC currently does not have any online multiplayer capabilities. You can play offline single player, or you can huddle with your friend and look at a tiny computer screen while you both use PC compatible controllers that may or may not work, or one of you uses a controller and the other one uses the awkward keyboard that was not designed for fighting games. The lack of online multiplayer in a fighting game at launch in this day and age is unforgiveable and many people will likely not stick around with DOA 5 long enough for online multiplayer to be patched in. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is as good a game as its previous incarnations, but you should not buy it on PC just yet. If you have a console, buy it for that console. If you don’t, just wait until online multiplayer is added.
